SALT LAKEBreeze Airways, a new US airline that is set to launch in early 2021, is planning to recruit students from Utah Valley University (UVU) as flight attendants.
The airline is offering positions to full-time online students who have been accepted into the new Breeze Flight Attendant UVU Flight Study Program. As part of the job, accepted students will be required to complete 30 credit hours per year and complete their degree in four years. 

Breeze will also provide a slate of perks for students, including up to $6,000 in reimbursement for educational expenses. Others include housing near hub cities, free transportation to and from airports, and one paid trip home per month. 
“Breeze will fly non-stop service between places currently without meaningful or affordable service,” 
said founder David Neeleman in a press release. 

Neeleman, who is also the founder of JetBlue, has said that the new airline will serve primarily mid-size cities and is trying to make travel as easy as possible for customers.

Breeze declares that it wants to offer a low-cost product, but says it also plans to offer a first-class product; so it will not be operating a true low-cost carrier (LCC) model.

The proposals do include some LCC features (such as a point-to-point route network, extra fees for additional services, and (originally) a single class of aircraft), but it will not have a single class of cabin (those paying higher fares are promised a 2-2 seat configuration and more legroom)[6] and indeed Breeze says it will charge for "what’s effectively four classes of service, starting with an ultra-low-fare product, from which you can buy your way up the ladder... ". 

Planes will not feature seatback in-flight entertainment; instead, entertainment will be streamed through the airline's app, which will also be used to purchase flights and upgrades.#

Breeze will deploy Airbus A220 and Embraer E195 jets on domestic routes. The airline has 60 A220-300s and 30 E195-E2 in its order book waiting to be delivered.#
